Sorry not sorry for all of the F words lately, but I think food is one of my favorites .. especially when said food is delivered out of a truck. From Hawaiian food to loaded quesadillas, we are here to share some of the best food trucks in Utah that you need to try this Summer!
Inspire Roots is a farm-to-table, well in this case truck, wood fire pizza truck. The founders, Alex Dachos and Silas Smith, pride themselves on getting all their ingredients from local food trades as well as ingredients pulled fresh from our gardens in Utah. Originally they planned to start a local food delivery service but lucky for us they opened this delicious wood fire pizza truck that is so much better than your average delivery pizza.
What should you try? Fig and Prosciutto Pizza: Goat cheese, Beehive cheese blend, organic figs, prosciutto, arugula, all topped off with a balsamic reduction.
Where will they be next? Saturday at Fisher Brewing 12p.m-9.p.m.
Check out their schedule here.
Coming from the streets of Los Angeles, Ruben Sauyun’s Bomb Dilla is a food truck full of loaded quesadilla mouth-melting debauchery. With the mission of bringing the L.A. culture and flair to Utah, they are pulling out all the stops by stuffing their loaded quesadillas (and even tater-tots) with ingredients like bulgogi steak, carne asada, onion rings and of course cheese!
What should you try? The Cali Killa: Carne asada, hot Cheetos, chipotle sauce, pico de Gallo, guacamole sauce and cheese.
Where will they be next? The food truck is getting a tune up right now but they will be back in action on Saturday at Jordanelle’s Fire on the Water event Saturday at 3p.m-10p.m.
Their weekly schedule is posted weekly on their facebook page, here.
The Salty Pineapple
Owner Daysha Filipe started this Hawaiian BBQ food truck after being inspired by the foods she had been raised on. The Salty Pineapple has crafted their own Jalepeno Pineapple BBQ sauce as well as a Sweet Garlic Sauce, giving a twist on the traditional Hawaiian BBQ flavors. If that’s not enough convincing, The Salty Pineapple recently won 1st place on Food Networks “Big Food Truck Tip” and took home $10,000 with which they are planning on opening at Brick and Mortar restaurant soon!
What should you try? Kalua Pig Bowl: Smoked salty pork shredded and garnished with green onions, piled high on a bed of rice, sweet hot island slaw, pineapple and garnished with sesame seeds. If you have more room in your stomach you should also try the Macaroni salad too!
Where will they be next? Thursday at Gallivan Center 11a.m-2p.m. See their full schedule here.
Bringing Cuba to SLC, Brett Roderick’s Cuban truck not only comes with the with Havana inspired colors painted on the outside, but with his own Abuela’s Picadillo stuffed Empanaditas, Tampa Cuban sandwiches and of course, the classic Cuban Sandwich. Spreading Caribbean vibes in the streets of SLC, Havana Eats is ready to share their traditional family food and traditions with us all.
